Abstract : Today performance of a web application holds the key to user satisfaction, how quickly and smoothly the web application responds to user requests thus becomes very crucial. This paper intends to focus on evaluating Java web application’s performance using automated and manual performance testing approaches. This work will make use of best in class performance testing tools to evaluate the performance of the Java web application and further attempt to compare these automated analyses with results of manual performance tests conducted by a group of users. This work will enable to evaluate the performance of our application thus indicating how well the application responds to concurrent user requests, which are generated automatically by scripts as well as those created by physical concurrent users under manual test. Thus the paper will also give a comparative study between the two approaches.

Keywords : Automated Performance Testing; Manual Performance Testing; Performance Testing; Jmeter Performance Testing.
